AFP reports that Airbus CEO Tom Enders said in an interview that the global aerospace sector is on the cusp of a “third revolution” enabled by technological breakthroughs. Speaking to AFP on the sidelines of an Airbus annual general assembly in Amsterdam, Enders said, “I do genuinely believe that we are at a point where those technological changes and breakthroughs in electric propulsion, autonomous flight, artificial intelligence, machine learning, new materials, all come together, plus the data usage, (and) will be nothing less than a third revolution in aerospace.” He stressed that Airbus is playing a role in the advances, saying, “Overall we are investing much more in innovation and digitalisation than we’ve done in previous years. ... It’s inevitable to prepare for the future.” (Image: Airbus A320neo on the runway of Toulouse-Blagnac airport, southwestern France, after successfully completing its first flight, Sept. 25, 2014.
